Notes
Three specimens were seen by Tomlin when reviewing the types in 1940, this is reiterated in McMillan 1985, who states that there are 3 syntypes. Note: the species name is spelt granulosa on p. 54 and 80, but later granulata on p. 87. Cernohorsky, 1984 chose one specimen from this group, designating it the lectotype "the brightly coloured syntype, length 9.8 mm, width 5.3 mm". One of the specimens matches these measurements, however it seems that the figure on the plate is of the other slightly larger specimen. This was probably mistakenly done, but it is therefore unclear which of the specimens Cernohorsky intended to be the type.
